​Engaging and Informative

"We had RPLYT deliver a one-day refresher on support group facilitator training for our staff and caregiver peer support facilitators. Robyn was awesome to work with! She custom-designed the training and handouts for us to ensure they met our needs. The one-day training was engaging and informative. Even the seasoned facilitators said they had a great time and learnt things. Robyn was fantastic."

Highly Recommend
